    What about those of us who donate by buying CD’s from On-Disk.com?

  2. pete Says:

    What’s the difference between Donations and Sponsors?

  3. Clem Says:

    kezdeth: That helps as well. These are the donations and sponsors for last month but as you highlighted, there are many other ways to contribute.

    Pete: Sponsors donate automatically every months through a Paypal subscription. Donations are once-off events (although some people donate more than once).

    G´day from Australia. Well done for a very polished Linux (so far) We have been using Linus for around 10 years and Mint so far is the best. now we are not affriad of getting our hands dirty but we were extremely suprised of how well Mint ran out of the box. Over the last 4-5 months we have tried pclinux.sabayon.mepis,fedora,suse 11, ubuntu and derivitives and this was the first one that recognised our 3d card a nvidia 8500gt, our printer (without having to find and install the right drivers) but not only that it also tells me our printer is getting low on ink. We have heaps of problems with different senarios (too many variations to go into) and Mint has so far came out on top, way on top. as said we are testing so will let you know if we hit any snages. and if all goes ok then we will certainly become a sponsor.

    thanks again.
    Mik

    I’m trying to figure out how to donate right now, I love Mint. The only complaint is that I set up my partitions manually and somehow lost windows from my grub but its prolly my own fault, I found the interface a little confusing, I’m still used to the old fdisk ways. I know I didn’t mess with the windows partition so I don’t know what happed, mabey windows needs to be installed after Mint, who knows. I think I’m done with windows anyways. The only thing I will miss is Digsby, that program rocks.
